(Yuba-Sutter, CA) – Enrollment is up for the Yuba Community College District, after a 19% drop due to the COVID pandemic in 2019/20.

The Appeal-Democrat reports several ‘strategies’ have since been implemented creating an uptick, following a loss of around 300,000 students overall in California. Those include increased outreach, marketing and engagement, as well as expanded efforts to attract older students and those interested in “upskilling” according to the paper. Both Woodland Community College & Yuba College are now offering career programs including in tech, agriculture, the culinary arts, childhood education and more.

The fall semester this year is showing an 8% increase in year-over-year enrollments.
